Degrees and Certifications:
Hi everyone! My name is Bonnie Smith, and I am very excited to be joining the sixth grade ELA team at New Albany Intermediate. For the past six years, I have been teaching seventh grade Language Arts and Writing at Tri-Valley Middle School in Dresden, Ohio. I am a graduate of The Ohio State University and hold a Bachelor of Science in Middle Childhood Education with a minor in Professional Writing. I am passionate about creating engaging learning activities and helping students find high-interest books.
My husband, Tom, and I live in Newark with our two dogs, Sage and Buster. Tom is an assistant principal at Heath Middle School. When I’m not teaching, I can be found reading, crafting, thrifting, or working on a project for our 1969 house. We are taking it room-by-room, attempting to DIY some of the renovations, and constantly scouring Facebook Marketplace for mid-century furniture.
I can’t wait to turn the page to this new chapter in my career, and I’m looking forward to a great year!
